Fast Track for Chinese Drywall Cases

The Daily Business Review (via law.com) reports that U.S. District Judge Eldon E. Fallon (New Orleans) will select five of the nearly 600 Chinese drywall cases for bellwether trials, possibly before the end of the year:

Fallon has ordered each side to select 10 cases to jump start the process of turning over documents and other information. He has said the initial trials most likely will involve claims limited to property damage as opposed to personal injury.
